Centurion: Mar 3, 2013

Pakistan skipper Mohammad Hafeez won the toss and elected to bat first in the second T20 against South Africa at Centurion on Sunday.

After the first T20 was washed out on Friday, the two teams face-off in the last game before the five-match ODI series begins next Sunday.

Pakistan are still hurting after being thoroughly outplayed by the home side in the three-match Test series and will hope to win the T20 and go into the ODI series with momentum on their side.

As far as South Africa is concerned, they will be full of confidence and will look to extend their good form into the shortest format of the game.
